## NAME

SGEEQUB - computes row and column scalings intended to equilibrate an M-by-N matrix A and reduce its condition number

## SYNOPSIS

SUBROUTINE SGEEQUB(
M, N, A, LDA, R, C, ROWCND, COLCND, AMAX, INFO )

IMPLICIT NONE

INTEGER INFO, LDA, M, N

REAL AMAX, COLCND, ROWCND

REAL A( LDA, * ), C( * ), R( * )

## PURPOSE

SGEEQUB computes row and column scalings intended to equilibrate an M-by-N matrix A and reduce its condition number. R returns the row scale factors and C the column scale factors, chosen to try to make the largest element in each row and column of the matrix B with elements B(i,j)=R(i)*A(i,j)*C(j) have an absolute value of at most the radix.
R(i) and C(j) are restricted to be a power of the radix between SMLNUM = smallest safe number and BIGNUM = largest safe number. Use of these scaling factors is not guaranteed to reduce the condition number of A but works well in practice.
This routine differs from SGEEQU by restricting the scaling factors to a power of the radix. Baring over- and underflow, scaling by these factors introduces no additional rounding errors. However, the scaled entriesaq magnitured are no longer approximately 1 but lie between sqrt(radix) and 1/sqrt(radix).

## ARGUMENTS

M (input) INTEGER
The number of rows of the matrix A. M >= 0.
N (input) INTEGER
The number of columns of the matrix A. N >= 0.
A (input) REAL array, dimension (LDA,N)
The M-by-N matrix whose equilibration factors are to be computed.
LDA (input) INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array A. LDA >= max(1,M).
R (output) REAL array, dimension (M)
If INFO = 0 or INFO > M, R contains the row scale factors for A.
C (output) REAL array, dimension (N)
If INFO = 0, C contains the column scale factors for A.
ROWCND (output) REAL
If INFO = 0 or INFO > M, ROWCND contains the ratio of the smallest R(i) to the largest R(i). If ROWCND >= 0.1 and AMAX is neither too large nor too small, it is not worth scaling by R.
COLCND (output) REAL
If INFO = 0, COLCND contains the ratio of the smallest C(i) to the largest C(i). If COLCND >= 0.1, it is not worth scaling by C.
AMAX (output) REAL
Absolute value of largest matrix element. If AMAX is very close to overflow or very close to underflow, the matrix should be scaled.
INFO (output) INTEGER
= 0: successful exit
< 0: if INFO = -i, the i-th argument had an illegal value
> 0: if INFO = i, and i is
<= M: the i-th row of A is exactly zero
> M: the (i-M)-th column of A is exactly zero
